Metal Cruising Takes a Slide

The Gauntlet reports that after the Mayhem Fest Cruise sunk in 2012, the Ship of Fear: A Horror Cruise has also been cancelled. The cruise was scheduled to take off this year between October 28 and November 2 but has now been officially canceled due to poor ticket sales.

The event was going to feature Alice Cooper and Dee Snider as musical guests, with appearances by directors and actors from genre-defining films, including "Child's Play", "Candyman", "The Fly", "Fright Night", "Gremlins", "The Howling", "Pet Sematary", as well as macabre illusionists, performance artists and rock stars for five full-moonlit nights.

A post on the event web site read as follows: "After careful consideration, we have decided not to continue with the 'Ship Of Fear' cruise and we will not be sailing in 2013. Those guests who already purchased cabins will be given a full refund. We feel that we had a strong combination of talent, programming and promotion; however, we did not receive the consumer demand required to continue."
